Engadget Review

The Swift 2 X is undoubtedly the best smartphone in the Swift 2 family on paper, as it doesn't share anything in common with the original Swift. Not only does it have the aluminium frame, faster processor, fingerprint reader and NFC, but it's the only device with an upgraded 5.2-inch, 1080p display. For that, though, you have to pay £30 on top of the price of the Swift 2 Plus, which isn't unreasonable if display resolution is a priority for you. But at £219, the Swift 2 X finds itself in a price bracket filled with competing smartphones that boast many of the same specs and features.
